New Zipp Seatpost and Bars for Fit, Comfort, and Performance

Zipp is releasing the newest redesign to their popular Service Course 70 handlebar line, as well as an all new version of the Service Course SL seatpost.


The redesigned Service Course SL seatpost is a new carbon post from Zipp, specifically tuned to be more shock absorbing than the “comfort” seatposts on the market, while still passing our strict internal MTB strength test. Flex engineered into the lightweight carbon tube keeps the rider comfortable over any terrain. It is available in 20mm and 0mm offsets.

Since their original introduction, the Zipp Service Course SL-70, Service Course SL-70 Ergo, and Service Course 70 Ergo have become the bike fitter’s go-to bar. The short reach to the hoods allows a proper fit without compromising stem length and steering control. Based on feedback from consumers, top pros and fitters, all models, both the round top and the flat top Ergo versions, have been updated with new features.

A new variable radius drop, matching the carbon SL-70 Ergo, allows for multiple hand positions when riding in the drops. This provides comfortable hand positions for riders who like to reach down to the drops, as well as for riders who reach in. The ergonomic flat top on the Service Course SL-70 Ergo and Service Course 70 Ergo now has a 3 degree backsweep for wrist comfort. And while the Service Course SL-70 has always been clip-on compatible, the new Service Course SL-70 Ergo and Service Course 70 Ergo now fit clip-ons on the 40cm and wider sizes.
